Cassettes aren't the fanciest component, but they can revolutionise your riding, allowing you to ride climbs you used to walk.
Shimano uses their hyperglide technology on this cassette. It's a series of small ramps that allow the chain to change more easily. On their road cassettes, this provides quiet and slick shifting, but it's most needed here on the wide-ranging MTB cassettes, where the jumps between gears are larger.
What you get with the M8000 cassette is a reasonably lightweight and very robust cassette that lasts for ages.
The best thing here is that you can make a great 1x system with a 32 or 34T chainring. That should get you up most slopes while still giving you gears for the faster trails and on the road.
This cassette and chain bundle means that you can have a lovely new drivetrain for smooth shifting and quiet pedalling!
